On Thursday March 13th, we marked the retirement of Cathi Graham, our HOD International Department, with a splendid morning tea and tributes for a job well done over 18 years.
Cathi has recruited, enrolled and looked after hundreds of international students from many points on the globe. As an ESOL teacher, Home-stay Co-ordinator, Outdoor Trips/ Summer School organiser and HOD, Cathi has helped every new student feel at home in their new country, city, home-stay and school. Many still keep in touch.
We will miss her cheerful presence, friendliness, incisive mind, wit and leadership. Her support of her international whanau and marketing expertise has benefited everyone in our school.
